Ayurveda & Yoga in French Polynesia
Polynesian Paradise Retreat
May 17-22 2020 || Ayurveda & Yoga in French Polynesia
Relax, restore, and rejuvenate on the breathtaking islands of French Polynesia. This 6-day, 5-night retreat will focus on Ayurveda and Yoga. Ayurveda is an ancient, holistic, whole body science from India, focusing on self healing. Each morning rise with the sun and enjoy an invigorating Ayurvedic based yoga practice combining vinyasa flow, hatha, and ashtanga. Spend your day soaking up the sun, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, exploring the island by bike, or relaxing. One night, we go to see the traditional Tahitian dance spectacular. Group afternoon activities will include 2 Ayurveda workshops, restorative/yin yoga, and guided meditation. Ideas and concepts of Ayurveda will be explained throughout the week in an easy to use way. Yoga teachers will receive 30 hours of Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance in the area of Ayurveda. At the end of the week, you will walk away feeling more rejuvenated in the mind, body and spirit and the knowledge to maintain this in your daily life.

“Island Ayuveda is the complete experience, built on a solid foundation of yoga, Ayuveda, meditation, and nutrition. Besides, excellent yoga instruction, tailored to our needs each day, we experienced the island together in a safe van with an incredible Tahitian guide. We witnessed sacred ancient sites, visited the mountain vistas, swam in the turquoise waters, and experienced sublime Tahitian dance! Basically, Lauren thought of everything - which allowed me to completely let go and enjoy the fully curated experience. 5 stars all the way!!!” -Wendy
